Five Things to Know for Your New Day -- Monday, June 23

Posted:
By CNN Staff

(CNN) -- John Kerry visits Iraq as the country gets pummeled by militants. Soccer star Hope Solo heads to court after cops say she attacked her sister and nephew. And the U.S. men's soccer team tries to recover from a roller coaster ride at the World Cup.

It's Monday, and here are 5 things to know for your New Day:

1. KERRY IN IRAQ

Dicey situation: If you think your Monday is stressful, at least you're not John Kerry. The secretary of state landed in Baghdad today to try to help with Iraq's problem of losing swaths of the country to radical militants. But even President Obama said there's only so much the U.S. can do. If Iraq's not willing to help resolve sectarian strife, "there's no amount of American firepower that's going to be able to hold the country together."

2. BOWE BERGDAHL

Baby steps: Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl is no longer a patent at Brooke Army Medical Center in Texas. He's been moved to an outpatient facility where his slow reintegration process continues. Previous captives have completed their program within 10 days. But authorities are taking it slow with Bergdahl, who was held captive by the Taliban for five years.

3. HOPE SOLO

Red carded: Hope Solo, soccer star and controversy magnet, will face a judge today after she was hauled off to jail over the weekend on domestic violence assault charges. Police said she attacked her sister and her 17-year-old nephew. She appeared "intoxicated," cops said.

4. MALAYSIA MISSING PLANE

Never give up: Australia says it'll announce a new search area this week in the hunt for the missing Malaysia Airlines Flight 370. A re-examination of data could shift the search area hundreds of kilometers south. Another development over the weekend: London's Sunday Times said the plane's pilot is the primary suspect. But Malaysian authorities say that's not true.

5. WORLD CUP

Thisclose: If you happened to be the one person in the U.S. who didn't watch the Americans take on Portugal, here's how it went down: Portugal led, and the U.S. tied. Then the U.S. led and we were feeling pretty good about it. All the team had to do was NOT. GIVE. UP. THE. BALL. But with just 27 seconds to go, Portugal bounced back with an equalizer.
